kinks that have to be worked out but he did also make clear and something president obama said from the beginning of his term he believed that enforcement truly needed to focus on employers because this is the draw. >> right. >> and as our economy recovers, that draw will exist again. it's certainly worth noting that the recession likely had a lot to do with some of the changes and the number of undocumented immigrants in this country and the number of people attempting to enter the country illegally. having said that, i think to his point about trying to crack down on employers and i guess ramp up enforcement, via fees, i would imagine would be quite frightening for businesses and industry that is are heavily dependent on undocumented workers. >> luke, you know, i remember quite clearly ann coulter commenting a while back after health care immigration was the big issue that conservatives needed to focus on because, quote, if the entire country goes the way of california republicans will never be able to win a national election again. i understand the political reality that republic
to work in the united states. something like this already exists but it's not widely used. president obama plans on praising all of those proposals today. but he wills go a step further. now, what he's looking for is a more straightforward path to citizenship and what i mentioned earlier with the senate's plan, theirs would be more of a probationary method. today's announcement is the kickoff for the administration's push on immigration reform. we're back after the break. stay with us. i want the people who watch our show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation on your radio and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: chuck schumer s
i hope is a potential glimmer of possibility for something to move forward. president obama in his inaugural address and on election night said we need to do something about the way we run elections. >> indeed we do. >> that's a chance the country ought to try to take because not to rig the game, but to take kind of commonsense steps to modernize voter registration. >> gerrmanderring happens on both sides of the aisle. there could be a democratic governor that takes it over and flips the script. >> i think part of what needs to happen is that on the left we need to reframe this argument on our constitutional rights, right? we're having this conversation about gun rights as a constitutional right and all the reasons why we shouldn't make it harder to own a gun or give somebody a gun. yet, we're accepting all kinds of new restrictions to make it harder for people to vote, and, again, i think if we couch this in the constitution and the constitutional rights that we're talking about and erring on the side of protecting the individual, i hope we can reframe the conversation. >> what he

here, but there are going to be -- this is something that obama has promised to do in his first four years repeatedly, did not get it done, and now he's going to be part of this. but some lawmakers think that the less engaged he is, it might be better off if he'sengaged ank its will. jon: well, he doesn't generally like to get involved in the nitty-gritty details of legislation, does he? >> no, no, and is we saw that in the fiscal cliff deal with joe biden getting involved. this is the perfect situation where you could have a bill eventually becoming law where obama does what he wants, he gives speeches, and his white house shop works at the details with members of congress, and there's a deal. and this is, clearly, i mean, there's a shift in the republican party. they know they've got to do better among hispanics, and there hasn't been a lot of criticism from the right on this bipartisan deal, not yet. there's been some but not nearly as much as there was six years ago. jon: bob cusack from "the hill," thank you. >> thank you. patti ann: growing concerns right now over the possible
. john mccain said on sunday we have to do something about the latino vote. president obama won 71% in the election a few months ago. he said today, the president is to unveil his own plan for immigration reform and will do that in las vegas. in nevada, a state where hispanicses makes.27% of the population, comes a day after a bipartisan group of eight senators reached a compromise how to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform. included in that bill, a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers currently in this country. >> other bipartisan groups and senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk opposing immigration reform than supporting it. >> the what's going on now is unacceptable. in reality, what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes and e
terrifying. >> you have crowds to go into ecstasy when they see president obama speak, passing out and the excitement of it. despite the absurdity of the entire campaign experience, there is something uplifting and strange about watching. that is the sublime part. the terrifying part is everything else. >> you found you were done with the campaign trail, that you would never go again. it is the same vow i have made. it is a waste of time, so 2012 i stayed in the studio and cover the convention every night but did so from los angeles. i did not waste money to cover something that is not going to make the news. that is my vow. i am trying to stick to mind. you broke your val. why did you break your vowels? >> i started not by covering everyone -- break your bow? >> i started by covering everyone who lost. hillary clinton, when she was supposed to be president. this was after i was the conventional wisdom was that hillary was supposed to be president. i said, i cannot deal with it. i quit my job at newsweek and went to afghanistan. >> you would take afghanistan over mccain? wow. i do
of victimhood. that president obama is more interested in defeating them than he is in getting something done for the country. last week house speaker john boehner started that drumbeat saying president obama was out to annihilate the republican party, and ryan amplified it when he spoke at a future of conservatism summit this saturday. >> the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyielding. we can't get rattled. we won't play the villain in his morality plays. we have to stay united. we have to show that if given the chance, we can govern. that we have better ideas. >> president obama has said he hoped this re-election would break that republican fever of total opposition, but in an interview with "the new republic" interview, brand new magazine, he said obviously that hasn't happened yet. joining me is columnist cynthia tucker and "the washington post's" eugene robinson. i want to start with gene up here. it seems to me they have this new sort of gee, whiz, we're getting beat up, but they were the party that for four years shut the door on a new president. he won the elec

something tom brought out, 71% and in the shows went for president obama. mitt romney did worse than john mccain did amongst hispanics. you remember the talk about self-deportation. john mccain said it over the weekend saying look, we can't win nationally. republicans can't win nationally if we're perceived as anti-hispanic and that's the than republicans now get. >> -- and that's the rap that republicans now get. >> we've heard opposition calling this amnesty or essentially allowing illegal activity. how likely do you think this is to pass both houses? >> this is a set of principles where the eight senators came through. the devil is always in the details in the legislation and the key stumbling block is when or how do you measure whether they've made the necessary security border guarantees so they can go forward? but this is a break-through saying 11 million people who are here illegally we're going to create a path way to citizenship. we're going to be tough on allowing any more illegal immigration and let's see if house republicans and for that matter, some house democrats buy that comp

, something emerges as the topic of the day. today's topic was the response to president obama about the risk of injury in football. >> i think if you play the game right, and you play appropriately that injuries are part of the game, but i don't think anything comes about it. >> i have a 4-month-old, almost soon to be 5-month-old son, jack harbaugh. and president obama feels that way, then be a little less competition for jack harbaugh when he gets old. still a little early for jack. 5 months old, but he's a really big kid. he's got an enormous head. >> what's his 40 time? >> we haven't gotten 40 out of him yet. but his wing span is a plus one. as soon as he grows into that head, he's going to be something. >> reporter: you can always count on jim harbaugh to have a little different take on things. how proud must jack and jackie harbaugh be? the odds of becoming a head coach in the nfl in the first place, address. then two sons that both become nfl head coaches and square off against each other in the super bowl. tomorrow is media day, we'll be all over that. until then, reporting live from
obama met with members of law enforcment to get their take on the gun debate. i welcome this opportunity to work with them, to hear their views about what would make the biggest difference to prevent something like newtown or oak creek from happening again 20 students and 6 adults were killed by gun fire in newtown connecticut.. talk of new rules on gun ownership is triggering a new round of supply and demand in the industry. kyle porter takes us the heart of texas. chris rhodes has a good problem. "they're buying everything." the president's recent proposal to ban certain assault weapons and high capacity clips has boosted business here "they're going crazy." like you wouldn't believe.

are called nation building here at home, something that not just candidate obama, but also candidate romney agreed about. we are looking at unprecedented cuts in spending on national security. we are looking at the prospect of drawing down and, drawing down from afghanistan. we are looking at a lot of changes. not just here in the united states but in the world. one of the questions i know that we have is whether we are ready for those changes. i suspect that most of us believe we are not. tom, maybe you could start out and talk a bit about the sequestration that paul ryan told us this weekend is quote going to happen. i'll give you the mic. >> well, it's a prediction that at this point seems like a certainty, but i would argue it's near certainty. once the sequestration provision was written into the budget. sal talk a bit about sequestration per se, but i really regarded as a symptom and not the disease itself. the disease itself is the erosion of the point of vanishing almost of the bipartisan political consensus for military strength, for key strength, people used to see. and that's rea
momentum in its tracks. there is a belief that president obama for tactical successes might do what he can to move the goalpost and move out the the left so it's not too much in the right at the end. maybe that is something democrats think is a shrewd plan. it's obviously going to throw gum in works. white house knows that. >> politically it's an act of sabotage. the way to deal with it is how schumer did. he agreed he wouldn't raise it. logical way to go about it is to have this as a separate provision. let the house and the senate decide on this and leave it as a separate vote. and have the rest of the bill, however it emerges as also separate decision. if you put them together you create poison pill. >> bret: next up how this and the boy scout possible change affects the gay agenda. with my friends, we'll do almost anything. out for drinks, eats. i have very well fitting dentures. i like to eat a lot of fruits. love them all. the seal i get with the super poligrip free keeps the seeds from getting up underneath. even well-fitting dentures let in food particles. super poligrip is zinc fr
of the architects of that strategy, something that hasn't gotten a lot of attention, but a lot of the obama folks think will be an important legacy of that administration. >> let's bring gloria back into this conversation. you did an excellent interview with the vice president, joe biden, last week. and you spoke a little bit about 2016, with him. do you believe, and it's obviously very early, and only political news junkies like us speculate about this, but we will, because it's fun. do you believe it's possible we could see a match between hillary clinton and joe biden for the democratic presidential nomination three years from now in iowa and new hampshire? >> you know, actually, wolf, i don't.cás+ decide to run, i think joe biden probably wouldn't, if i had to guess. and this is just a guess. i don't think you're going to see a divisive democratic primary. i think that hillary clinton has such broad and deep support within the democratic party,?rf don't know what ryan thinks about this, but i have a sense that if the democrats felt they had a really good shot at it and the nomination were t
